Beauty | Essence Plump No Clump Mascara

I noticed that the vast majority of beauty posts on this blog are dedicated to lip products. Now I like lip products, God knows I freakin love them, but I wanted to introduce a bit more variety to ClaireMac in the form of other cosmetics, skincare and bath product reviews. Today I'm bringing a £2.79 mascara to the table which my friend described to me as 'the best mascara she'd ever tried'... Well there's a bold statement if I ever heard one! 

I was too intrigued not to pick up this vibrant tube of so called deliciousness so I headed down to my local Wilko's & straight for the Essence Plump No Clump mascara.
Being a budget makeup brand, I don't really expect the world when it comes to packaging however I do find the mix of peachy pink & teal to be a little bit tacky. Don't forget though, it's what's inside that counts, so I'm never one to dismiss a product based on it's packaging alone. Something else that put me off (not going so well is it... Just hold onto your hats) is the huge plastic brush applicator that's revealed once you open the product. I'm not a massive fan of the larger brushes, as it can be really difficult to reach the smaller hairs on the inner & outer eye area... However (I'm a tease aren't I?) I had absolutely no difficulty whatsoever with this! I don't know why I was worrying! I prefer plastic brushes for my lashes anyway but there's something rather deceiving about this one... It looks all big and clunky, but when it comes to the crunch, it's amazing at dispersing the product perfectly onto the lashes.
The product itself is brill! I find it separates my lashes brilliantly. It reminds me very much of the Loreal Telescopic mascara, which was a massive favourite of mine many moons back. I should probably reinvest in that again actually - It's an amazing mascara! Anyway, before I get totally distracted, I love how buildable the Plump No Clump mascara is, one coat is perfect as an everyday look, however if you want a more glamorous appearance, this mascara will easily give 3 or 4 coats to your lashes without clumping... Exactly as the name suggests. Who'd have thought it?!? I bought the shade black however Essence also do this mascara in a deep black as well which I'd love to try. I think it'd be the perfect mascara for a night out, especially after a few coats - It'd look ace!

Have you tried any Essence products before? This is my first ever Essence product but because I liked this one so much, I placed an online order for a few other bits. Woop! Have you got any products you'd recommend?

Thank you for reading as always! Lots of love | Claire.x

    1. If you put it on carefully, yes! It's a fab mascara... And for the price too. I'd definitely give it a go. There's a few other mascaras from essence I'd like to try. X
